This climb is a nice cut-off from Bodega Hwy to Occidental or Coleman Valley Road and offers a nearly private, albeit brief, Sonoma County climb. The first .75 miles off of Bodega Hwy are surrounded by pasture land and mild grade.
At approximately mile .75 the road pitches up for 4/10's of a mile to 11.8%. A second pitch of 1/2 mile greets us at mile 1.6 and averages 10.4%. Other than those two significant segments, the climb is mild and always quiet and scenic.
Roadway surface/Traffic: The roadway is in moderately good condition with no shoulder (at points it is more of a wide single lane) but minimal traffic.
